Expected Harvest
Each week I will post a list of what we expect to harvest and distribute to our CSA members that week.  But, please remember that this list is just an estimate based on a quick walk-through of our fields and not a guarantee of what will be at the pick-ups.  What we are actually able to harvest may change according to how things look when we are out in the fields that day. 

garlic scapes (see below for more information and recipes)
kale
kohlrabi (see below for more information and recipes)
head lettuce
lettuce mix – a blend of red, green, and speckled loose leaf lettuces
spinach – large, but tender leaves of a savoyed variety
radishes – french breakfast

Bonus Herbs
oregano
spearmint

BYOB: bring your own bags, please.

Again this year we are trying to reduce the number of plastic bags we use, so please bring your own bags to pack up and carry your produce.

In the chance that you forget your bag, one of our CSA members has generously donated some reusable shopping bags that we will have available at the pick-up for members to use to carry their produce home in.

Dear CSA Members,

The start of our CSA season is fast approaching.  Here is a little information to get you ready for the start of the season.

When do pick-ups start?

I’m sure that is the question on all of you minds.
Spring started out a bit wet and cool, and so our plantings were delayed quite a bit.  Our season will begin in early June and then run for 26 weeks, ending around Thanksgiving.

We are aiming to begin CSA pick-ups the week after Memorial Day:

  • Tuesday, May 31st (4-6 pm) will be the first Kingstown pick-up.
  • Wednesday, June 1st will be the first Wye delivery.
  • Friday, June 3rd (4-6 pm) will be the first Farm pick-up.  Dover delivery and Purlple Sage (Middletown,DE) drop-off will also start.
  • Saturday, June 4th (8am-10am) will be the first Chestertown farm market pick-up.

If you don’t remember which day you signed up for, please email or call.

CSA Member Welcome Booklet

Last year we put together a booklet of information about our operation and farm to share with you, our CSA members.  We have posted it online and it can be viewed as a pdf document by clicking on this link: CSA Member Booklet.
